Elmer Gantry is a satirical novel written by Sinclair Lewis in 1926 that presents aspects of the religious activity of America in fundamentalist and evangelistic circles and the attitudes of the 1920s public toward it. The novel’s protagonist, the Reverend Dr. Elmer Gantry, is initially attracted by booze and easy money (though he eventually renounces tobacco and alcohol) and chasing women. After various forays into evangelism, he becomes a successful Methodist minister despite his hypocrisy and serial sexual indiscretions.—Wikipedia. [Suggest a different description.]
Author Bio for Lewis, Sinclair
Sinclair Lewis (1885-1951) was a noted American writer. He became known in the 1920s for his books that satirized the spartan materialism and intolerance that typified life in small towns across the country. The word 'babbitt' (his book by that name written in 1922), is still used as a synonym for middle-class philistinism. He refused the Pulitzer Prize for Arrowsmith (1925) but accepted the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1930, becoming the first American to be awarded that prize. (Chambers Biographical Dictionary)
